Last Round Of Chemo Done!
0

14 posts in this topic

Good morning friends,

Well I am all done with my three rounds of cocktails, can I get a Woo Hoo!!! I am scheduled for the removal of my stomach on January 27th, so basically I have 23 days to eat all I want to eat, of course no gluten, lol. The doctors are so pleased with my progress and actually think I will have an easier time with the surgery and the new diet because I already know what my body can and cannot handle, what will cause the big D, make me sick, etc..... So thank you Celiac Disease!!!!!

Now dont get me wrong I know that this will not be easy, but I do feel pretty good going into this, I can look at this two ways, I am getting my stomach removed, ummmm ya that is not going to be fun, or I can look at it as I am getting rid of the organ that has the cancer so that I can move on and live my life, there will be major dietary changes but heck we have all been through that!!

It's kinda funny people say to me well at least you wont have Celiac Disease anymore, ummmm ya I will, I just laugh it off. People dont understand I dont mind having Celiac, its the Cancer that pisses me off, lol.

There are certain things I miss, you bet, but on the other hand I never feel like I am missing out on good food, I eat great food everyday!!!

So I just want to say to everyone we have Celiac Disease, Celiac Disease does not have us!!!

Oh and to let you know I got the cutest little blond wig and I am rockin that new hair, you know they do say blondes have more fun :D

Have a wonderful day everyone, thanks again for all the support and hugs, take care B)

You have such a great attitude. I hope everything works out really well for you.

I hope you don't mind me asking for details. But I am curious about your surgery. Will they be removing most of your stomach and leaving a small amount for food intake, kind of like a Vertical sleeve Gatrectomy or will you have to have it all removed and be basically left with a bypass surgery? If they are leaving some of your stomach, do you know the percentage of stomach they are removing?

I cannot believe someone thought you wouldn't have Celiac's anymore...LOL....DUH!!!!

Here's one for you:

I've read so many times on here about people saying that other people would say to them, that they would kill themeselves if they couldn't eat bread/pasta. It has really offended many of the gluten challenged on this site. Well, glory be, it finally happened to me the other day. The cashier said it. I was delighted, because it took nearly 2 years for someone to say it to me, she said "I'm Italian and I would kill myself if I couldn't eat pasta" I had a good laugh and then told her about Tinkyada pasta, ending with "see you wouldn't have to kill yourself afterall" I said it sarcastically, but in a joking way that caused all around, even the cashier to burst out laughing. Sometimes we just have to find humor in things that really are not funny. I love your attitude and just thought that you would enjoy that liitle tale.

I'll be praying for you, and will add your name to the prayer basket at church on Sunday. I'll be praying that your surgery goes smoothly and safely and that the surgeon gets every bit of the cancer out of there and that you have no more cancer ever ever ever ever again...(((((hugs)))).

    • I too have heart palps, flutters, skips whatever you want to call them. Ecg shows nothing. I was told by my doctor it is due to my low iron which is due to celiac. They pretty much went away after being gluten-free. But occasionally do come back. I've actually been having them for the past 3 days. But I was glutened with really severe reaction about a week ago so not sure if its due to that. Or if iron is low right now. I am on supplements but it still goes up and down. I hear you about doctors. It seems if you don't do research yourself or ask questions they don't say or do or test for anything. 
    • For a number of years pre diagnosis I had irregular heartbeats - anything from a fluttering type thing to seemingly skipping one or more beats to rapid beats to something like a short drum riff. I had multiple ECG's which didn't find anything odd. It never did it when I was at the doctors or getting the ECG's. Sometimes it seemed to pound very hard & rapid, at these times I discovered if I just laid down flat on my back, it would restore normal rhythm almost instantly. These things happened at random whether I was at rest, sitting, standing, running or working hard. It was always short lived -- lasting only 1 to several seconds, perhaps the longest was close to a minute. I too have little faith in docs as I've had my share of being blown off, to misdiagnoses. The whole heart thing quit after I had been gluten-free for a while but if I get glutened, it returns.
    • My daughter had the HPV Vaccine last year. It was administered in three doses in April 2015, May 2015, and August 2015. Immediately after the third dose, she started having weird symptoms such has headaches, irritability, and a general feeling of being unwell (which she never had before). About three months later she started having gastro symptoms, most notably constant nausea. For several months we tried to figure out what was wrong and none of the doctors knew. After seeing many doctors and having a battery of tests, she was finally diagnosed with Celiac in August 2016. Her intestinal damage was a 3b Marsh score. No one else in our immediate or extended family has Celiac (myself and my other daughter were tested and are negative). No one else has symptoms or any indication that they could have Celiac. I feel like my daughter could have gone her whole life without being triggered and I'm feeling very guilty for making her get this controversial vaccine. I have done a lot of research and there seems to be conflicting studies regarding vaccines and autoimmune diseases. Some say there is no link, while others say there is a possible link, but it cannot be proven at this time. No one seems to know for sure what triggers Celiac...could it be vaccines? I'm wondering if anyone else feels that their Celiac Disease was triggered by a vaccine?  
    • Here is an article, albeit short, about Myocarditis and Celiac disease.  I have read before about a connection between the two and A-Fib is another one that can happen with undiagnosed Celiac. From one over-thinker to another......its the inflammation thing, along with maybe some genetic components to it.  I can't remember how long you have been gluten-free but it can take awhile for things to settle down, especially if your thyroid is wonky also.  I have Celiac and Hashi's so feel your pain, even though I have not had any cardiac involvement.  Some doctors really suck. I have a lifetime of bad with them so do not go that often, only when I have to and am leery about seeing any new ones. I am so done with that attitude of theirs. I think you need to find someone who has knowledge of Celiac and it's related conditions and who actually listens to the patient. That might be harder than finding a needle in a haystack but I wish you luck!
